Today, the color coat for the stucco went on. It hasn’t dried yet, and my understanding is that it will darken by a couple of shades as it does.
Some progress on the renovation continues, albeit slowly.
The roofing delay we experienced was mostly due to them running out of shingles. The shingle was a special order, and only part of the shipment arrived. So they stopped for a month or so while they waited for the rest to arrive.
Fortunately, it arrived last week, and they returned to finish the addition’s roof and proceed in the main house.
The roofing for the addition is finally complete. Well, almost.
Here’s a photo from a few days ago that shows the shingles are complete. The lead vent pipe flashing and the kitchen exhaust vent are also installed.
The roofer has finally started roofing the addition. This is a complex project that involves creating gutter troughs that are carefully pitched towards the downspout locations.
Work had been progressing at a good pace.
The street, driveway, and yard were patched and repaired after the water service was upgraded.
The concrete contractor finally returned on Friday, March 23rd with a break in the cold weather, and they finished pouring the concrete for the final underpinning section and the slab. They had to cut some holes on the side of the addition so they could get their concrete chute through.
